Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi: “If Trump and Pompeo are not tried … Muslims will take our martyr’s revenge.”
Iran has vowed ‘revenge’ if former U.S. President Donald Trump and ex-Secretary of State Mike Pompeo are not put on trial for the 2020 drone strike that killed its top terrorist operative Qassem Soleimani.
Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi demanded the former U.S. president face judgment according to Islamic law and called upon all Muslims to avenge Soleimani’s killing. “Trump must face ‘God’s ruling’ and suffer ‘qisas’, which is the Islamic term for retaliation in kind,” Al Jazeera reported citing the Iranian president’s televised speech that marked Soleimani’s second death anniversary.
“If Trump and Pompeo are not tried in a fair court for the criminal act of assassinating General Soleimani, Muslims will take our martyr’s revenge,” Raisi declared on Monday.
Soleimani headed the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps-Quds Force, a U.S.-designated foreign terrorist organization. He was killed in a U.S. drone strike near Baghdad airport on January 3, 2020.

According to the U.S. Defense Department, Soleimani was directly responsible for killing hundreds of American troops in Iraq. The drone strike was ordered by President Trump when Soleimani was “actively developing plans to attack American diplomats and service members in Iraq and throughout the region,” the Pentagon confirmed.
Reuters reported the Iranian threat aimed AT President Trump:
Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi vowed revenge on Monday for the U.S. assassination of Iranian general Qassem Soleimani two years ago unless former U.S. President Donald Trump was put on trial.
Iran and groups allied with it in Iraq have been holding events to honour Soleimani, the commander of the Quds Force, the overseas arm of the elite Revolutionary Guards.
He was killed in Iraq in a drone strike on Jan. 3, 2020, ordered by then president Trump.
“If Trump and (former secretary of state Mike) Pompeo are not tried in a fair court for the criminal act of assassinating General Soleimani, Muslims will take our martyr’s revenge,” Raisi said in a televised speech on Monday.
On Sunday, Iran urged the U.N. Security Council in a letter to hold the United States and Israel, which Tehran says was also involved in the killing, to account, according to Iranian media.
On Monday, pro-Iranian demonstrators in Baghdad trampled on U.S. and Israeli flags to vent their anger over the killing of their beloved terrorist mastermind. “Chanting anti-American slogans, hundreds of people rallied in the Iraqi capital Saturday to mark the anniversary,” The Times of Israel reported. “American and Israeli flags were strewn on the ground as protestors trampled on them.”
Tehran-sponsored foreign terrorist groups also marked the death anniversary of their Iranian mentor and paymaster. “Yemen’s Houthi rebels seized an Emirati-flagged ship, explosive-laden drones targeted the Iraqi capital’s airport and hackers hit two Israeli newspapers on Monday, raising tensions in the Middle East as Iran-aligned militias attacked U.S. allies on the second anniversary of America’s killing of one of Tehran’s top generals,” The Wall Street Journal reported on Monday.
The Iranian president, who wants President Trump to face Islamic “justice,” is known to his people as Ebrahim “The Butcher” Raisi for ordering the mass execution of thousands of dissidents. He launched his political career as a member of the four-men “Death Committee,” which sent at least five thousand Iranians to their deaths in the 1980s. His victims included women and children.
While the Iranian regime demands the head of the former U.S. president, the Biden White House is busy coaxing the Mullahs to restore the Obama-era nuclear deal. The Shia-Islamic regime appears to be biding time, as it enriches near-weapons grade uranium and tests new nuclear-capable missiles.
